Understanding how we can apply technology to improve clinical practices is the wellspring for innovation. As scientists from a wide range of disciplines are continually pushing the limits of what’s possible, researchers and clinicians must work with them to develop new techniques to take advantage of these capabilities.
This kind of interdisciplinary collaboration is a cornerstone of the University of Utah’s Comprehensive Arrhythmia Research & Management Center (CARMA), whose mission is to provide worldwide pioneering leadership in advancing clinical treatments and research for cardiac arrhythmias, especially atrial fibrillation (AF). To gain insights into how technology, specifically the use of advanced MRI, is changing clinical treatment of AF, we spoke to Eugene Kholmovski, PhD, an Assistant Professor at the Utah Center for Advanced Imaging Research.
How long have you been working with CARMA and what is your primary role?
